Any idea what this fork might be? This is a late '85 Shadow frame. It looks like a Shadow fork, but it has cutouts in the drops. It seems bigger than a 3.1 fork...Maybe they used 3.1 drops on it?

These undrilled Decoster forks are not to common to come by in great shape. The drop outs are really clean.

Just saw this thread and thought I would add my 26" VDC oval tubing fork. Exactly like 1st gen Traker fork but in 26"

The fork is a standard mini size, shorter head tube to fit frames with he shorter head tube, you can run full size wheels if you wanted but I always use sew ups, 20 x 1 3/8 or 20 x 1 1/8

Damn. Thanks for that pic Brian. Given the VDC cruiser fork above, thought I had a line on history of the Superbyke fork. Your drops show I need to dig more...
